Our wedding was pushed back for financial reasons for the wedding. We’re okay with pushing back, even though it’s just as stressful. Until our meeting with our priest to let him know we’re pushing back. Instead, he insist we should push it forward. He said we should have an intimate ceremony with only very close family (parents, grandmothers, siblings) and go out to a nice restaurant afterward. Then on a later date, have a celebration at our venue. But I also feel like pulling what Kelly Clarkson did last year and just get married. Then send everyone who received a save the date from the original date a wedding announcement and that’s it. We’ll eventually make the family/friends get togethers after this if we go this route.
Am I being a bad bride for doing this? Even pushing back is continuing to cause us stress.

I just read your post and couldn’t help but reply. I think it’s your special day so you should do what you want. We’d all love to invite everyone but if people know you and care about you, they should understand your circumstances.
I’d probably just have a small ceremony with close family and friends. The rest will hopefully understand.
Good luck! I hope everything will work out well for you guys :).

nothing wrong with eloping. I’m seriously getting to the F%#$ it stage of this whole thing and just want it over and wished I’d gone with my first plan which was to elope. Eloping isn’t something everyone will like… you have to stand by your guns if you do this route.

NYMeetsPA: You cannot be a “bad bride” by doing what you want!!! If you and your FI want to elope, then for you, that is what a “good bride” does!

There is no such thing as a bad bride here! Do what feels right. It’s your Marriage, not everyone elses. Just elope and then throw a party to share your big news with everyone. It will cheaper and still a ton of fun!
